Mentoring young athletes is a passion, so I am delighted to have joined the Minerva Foundation as a mentor. 

I currently mentor young journalists and also university students just about to begin their careers. 

I have more than 13 years with a range of media organisations including The Sydney Morning Herald, the Sunday Age, the Daily Telegraph, the Nine Network, Bloomberg News and the Australian Financial Review.  I spent more than five years as Director of the international strategic communications firm, Kreab, in the Melbourne office.  A former senior adviser in the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Canberra and also in Washington DC. 

I have also been a speechwriter and media adviser for political leaders in Canberra and the Northern Territory. I have served on the boards of the Essendon Cricket Club and the Methodist Ladies College in Melbourne.
